Mark's posts

Hold up my goings in thy paths,
that my footsteps slip not.

As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness:
I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

(Psalm 17:5,15)

Sustenta mis pasos en tus caminos,
Para que mis pies no resbalen.

En cuanto a mí, veré tu rostro en justicia;
Estaré satisfecho cuando despierte a tu semejanza.

(Salmo 17.5,15)

"Is 'accepting Jesus in your heart' superstitious and unbiblical? Pastor David Platt thinks it's not just dangerous, but damning."

Hmmm. What do you think? What does the Bible say?

Six years ago I was asked if I considered "Mennonites to be a religion or a culture."

This is the obituary that was read and distributed at the funeral yesterday. This post includes pdfs of the funeral obit and program (the latter of which includes a poem composed by my father's only daughter-in-law).

Today we bury the well-used, now-vacated earthen vessel that housed my Dad for 82 years. We rejoice in his eternal joy and wholeness. God is great. God is good. Amen.

Praise ye the LORD:
for it is good to sing praises unto our God;
for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.

He healeth the broken in heart,
and bindeth up their wounds.

Great is our Lord, and of great power:
his understanding is infinite.

The LORD lifteth up the meek:
he casteth the wicked down to the ground.

The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him,
in those that hope in his mercy.

(Psalm 147:1,3,5,6,)

Alabad a JAH,
Porque es bueno cantar salmos a nuestro Dios;
Porque suave y hermosa es la alabanza.

El sana a los quebrantados de corazón,
Y venda sus heridas.

Grande es el Señor nuestro, y de mucho poder;
Y su entendimiento es infinito.

Jehová exalta a los humildes,
Y humilla a los impíos hasta la tierra.

Se complace Jehová en los que le temen,
Y en los que esperan en su misericordia.

(Salmo 147.1,3,5,6,)

Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help,
whose hope is in the LORD his God:

Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is:
which keepeth truth for ever:

(Psalm 146:5,6)

Bienaventurado aquel cuyo ayudador es el Dios de Jacob,
Cuya esperanza está en Jehová su Dios,

El cual hizo los cielos y la tierra,
El mar, y todo lo que en ellos hay;
Que guarda verdad para siempre,

(Salmo 146.5,6)
